so I was thinking about whoopie and had a thought...I will try this tomorrow but wantef to get it on paper while it is still fresh in my mind.
after you do your locked brummel what if you use the same standard amount of cord but bury it half the normal distance? after you bring it out of the bury pass through the standing part slightly above where you came out and bury it backwards through the previously buried section. to help visualize picture a bury wiyhin a bury within a bury. you don't save any card but end up with a substantially shorter whoopie while maintaing full recommended bury length.
I welcome all constructive criticisms.
I will post pics tomorrow and test it this week.
